The processing of this coffee is fully washed, as is traditional in Kenya. Ripe cherry is pulped by disk pulpers and fermented for 24-36 hours, depending on ambient temperature, before being washed in channels and transported to soaking tanks. The water that is used throughout the process, comes from the local river, Thiririka.
